Former Issaquah High School and University of Washington soccer standout Kate Deines will once again get the opportunity to play in front of the hometown crowd after it was announced that she has signed with Seattle Reign FC.
The club is a part of the new eight-team National Women’s Soccer League set to begin play in spring 2013. The team will play its home matches at Starfire Sports Stadium in Tukwila.
“I can’t begin to describe how excited I am to play professionally in Seattle, before my family and friends,” Deines said in a statement posted on the team’s Facebook page. “The support in this city is awesome, and now to have a professional team in Seattle, I can’t even imagine the atmosphere for our home matches.”
